He noted the video was a violation of Steelers team and league policy.

Tomlin says Brown will be punished by the team -- but didn't expand on what the punishment will be. He hasn't spoken with Brown since the incident.

Tomlin says the locker room speech was supposed to be a private moment ... and moments like those shouldn't be shared.

As for his language in the video, Tomlin says, "As a parent, as a member of the community I take that very seriously. I issue an apology in that regard."

He also praised Tom Brady and said the Pats are a "great team."

New details from the Joey Porter arrest ... cops say the Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach roughed up a bouncer at a South Side bar after the game Sunday night ... in a VERY boozy altercation. 

According to the court complaint ... an off-duty cop arrived to the bar around 9:30 PM to find the former linebacker "standing over" the doorman.

The doorman told Porter, "Last time you were here, you threatened to kill me. You need to leave. You are not getting in."

At that point, cops say "Porter lunged at [the bouncer] and grasped [him] by his arms" ... and lifted him off the ground. 

The off-duty officer says he rushed in and pulled Porter off the bouncer. The cop says Porter then grabbed HIM by the wrist -- and tried to plead his innocence. 

He told the cop, while still grabbing him, "I'm not touching you."

The cop says Porter reeked of booze. 

Eventually, Porter let go and was arrested. The cop says he was in fear that Porter was going to cause him "serious injury." 

Porter was eventually booked for aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. 

Bail was set at $25k.
